New Aston Martin Supercar Takes World Bow

Aston Martin's stunning new DB7 GT, the most powerful Aston Martin ever made, was unveiled to the world at the British International Motor Show at the NEC in Birmingham today.

Dr. Ulrich Bez, CEO of Aston Martin, launched the new supercar to a drooling press pack, who crowded around the Aston Martin stand to glimpse the sleek addition to the DB7 range.

“The DB7 GT has been developed in response to customer demand and is a sportier approach to the current car, but incorporates all of the elements that have made the DB7 so successful for us and the backbone of the company,” he said.

Based on the DB7 Vantage Coupe and priced at £104,500, the new model is available in two versions: a six-speed manual Coupe (DB7 GT) and a five-speed automatic (DB7 GTA).

“The DB7 is the most significant Aston Martin of all time,” added Dr Bez, “And this addition to the 2003 model line-up gives the world's most prestigious sports car manufacturer the opportunity to provide an even more focused DB7 than ever before.”
